I was surprised, amazed and angry at the article on Marquesas. If a travel article is written to inform, I think the article should be up-to-date. That one was not. I also think Paul Theroux took liberties in making comments which weren't amusing or true.
Theroux was apparently writing about an experience 1 1/2 years ago on Aranui I. To be informing your readers, you should have information on Aranui II--the present.
Corona del Mar
Editor's Note: Theroux's trip was aboard the Aranui II.
